This past week I started a brand-new job and have experienced some brand-new fears. Here are a few:
* Will my body be able to adjust to new sleep and eating patterns?
* What if my alarm doesn’t work?
* Will I be able to learn the new terminology and find the various classrooms and labs on campus?
Then I remembered to recite, “Do not be afraid, Teresa.” God is with me, watching, guiding, enabling and equipping me to do my very best. He’s in the business of perfection…and still working on me!
How about you? Is there a fear(s) you’re holding on to? Maybe, you’ve clasped the fear tightly for months or even years. Can you release your grasp on it long enough to offer up your fear to God who’s in charge of the big and the little stuff?
Prayer. I voluntarily give my fears back to you, God, since you are in the business of healing and comfort. I need not worry or be afraid!
But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, (Teresa), I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. “ – Luke 2:10
